After meeting a coffee farmer in Peru, Urth Caffe’s founders Jilla and Shallom Berkman discovered many destructive practices used by large-scale companies when producing coffee. Seeing this, they were inspired to open doors to their own cafe that would serve organic, health-conscious food and drinks.

Upon entering, guests are greeted by friendly staff and a spacious dining area. The number of windows in this restaurant allow natural light into the cafe, giving the impression that it’s an open space and reminded me of the outdoors. Immediately, I was amazed at how many different options I had to choose from and how pretty all the cakes looked. There were so many options that catered to many dietary needs or preferences, notably: gluten-free, vegan, and organic diets.

To start, I ordered the Sunshine Smoothie ($8.25). This drink is made with pineapple, apple, celery, lemon, and ginger. While the combination of the ingredients sounds unpleasant, the drink wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. For the most part, the ingredients worked pretty well together and the flavor was alright. My only complaint was that there was a ginger aftertaste after each sip, which I found off-putting.

The next thing I ordered was a small Green Rose Latte ($5.95), which was a matcha and rose flavored tea. The presentation of this drink was beautiful, with latte art and flower petals decorating the top of the drink. The flavors were well-balanced and the matcha and rose flavors complimented each other nicely. There was also a subtle kick of spice in the drink, which helped enhance the overall flavor. It was my favorite item that I ordered and I would definitely get it again.

The last thing I tried was the Apple Tarte Tatin ($8.95). While the presentation of this dessert wasn’t the most captivating, the taste made up for it. The tart was warm, with ripe apples, a subtle cinnamon flavor, and a soft crust. Overall, it was pretty good for a traditional dessert. I appreciated how the restaurant is also focused on environmental conservation by using compostable cutlery.

Urth Caffe has a variety of dishes to choose from and there’s something for everyone. Although the food I tried was a bit pricey, the taste was worth it. I would come back to try other items to see what else this place has to offer.
